David Ortiz (pictured) continued his hot streak. He had three hits including a pair of home runs. He is now within nine of the celebrated 500 mark.

Miami got out to a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning on a lead-off home run by Dee Gordon. Boston tied the score on Ortiz's 490th career home run deep into the right field seats.

Miami pushed three more runs across in the bottom of the third to take a 4-1 lead but Boston kept chipping away with a run in the fourth on a double-play groundout by Rusney Castillo and two more in the fifth on a run-scoring single by Brock Holt and an RBI double by Xander Bogaerts.

Holt, and Bogaerts each had two hits in the loss. Jackie Bradley Jr. had another hit and scored a run.
